2361  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / TV Shows on DVD - Recommendations on: February 19, 2005, 05:04:33 PM
Thanks guys.  I will try The Wire next, and Wonderfalls after that.

I haven't missed an episode of Alias as well.  Great show!
2362  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / TV Shows on DVD - Recommendations on: February 19, 2005, 05:49:23 AM
I have watched Season 1 and almost all of Season 2 of the Shield in the past few weeks on DVD and have really enjoyed them.  It's awesome in fact.  I am going to try and watch season 3 before the new season starts so I can get caught up.  Anyway, I am looking for some recommendations on a show to start next.  My favorite show ever made is 24 and I haven't missed an episode, so don't recommend it smile  I have Firefly and have started it and it's pretty decent so far, just not my cup-o-tea really.  

I like comedies, but tend to enjoy Dramas like 24 and The Shield more.  Anything is fine though.  

I look forward to hearing some recommendations!

Man, I would love to but I can't guarantee how much time I will have to spend on it.  I have the wedding in April and have to start studying for CFA Level 1 in June... frown

Going to miss playing this year.

Man, the PSP looks beautiful.

I saw it at E3 and was quiet impressed, but haven't really been keeping up with it.

Explain to me if you will, how one would go about watching a Band of Brothers episode on the psp.

If I can watch movies i download on it I'll preorder one tomorrow.
2366  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Which P2P client do you use? on: February 17, 2005, 06:05:20 PM
I primarily use BT, with Bit Comet.  I just recently started to use Limewire, which is freaking fantastic (read:  FAST).

I also use Soulseek on occasions, although it seems to be slow.

Also Baseball, of course smile

I have a great way to get TV shows.

Search google for “Lost Torrents”

Scroll down till you see a hit that has the address

http://www.freewareweb.com

Go there and download to your hearts content.

I can’t find the torrents from just going to the root address, only through google.

I get the OC, Lost, 24, Alias & Smallville using this method.

Yea, Jack dropped it when he was fighting Ethan.

Great episode, great show.

I actually think LD's explanation sounds pretty darn good.  You snobs over-analyze everything.
2370  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Brother in arms is almost done! 1 item left. That`s it! on: February 10, 2005, 02:17:48 PM
This game was my #1 game at E3 last May.  I sat through the 20 minute demo and picked my jaw off the floor when I left.  

I'm all over this one.  Most anticipated game for sure, STALKER is right behind it though.

I'm an Investment Performance Verification consultant for Investment management firms across the country.  I just started about a month ago and love it so far.  I have been on two trips already, to Denver and Chicago and really enjoy the work.  It's really challenging, unlike my previous job.  The company is only 3 years old, so I really feel fortunate to be in something that could really be huge and is already growing at an insane rate.

2378  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What, no 24 thread? on: January 26, 2005, 09:56:26 PM
I am really liking this season as well.

24 is the greatest TV show ever made.

It pains me to say it, but I agree Alias is meh this season.  The first episode was awful.  I didn't even see it last week.  

Sloan being in charge of the black-ops org. ruined the whole thing for me.  There is no way in hell any government on this planet would allow someone who did as much harm as sloane to be in charge of something like that.

I have heard this show was good from so many sources I decided to give it a chance this season. I gave it a good chance I watched more than the first hour of it before I got totally fed up and quit. Just a few of the things that lost me. The truck skids to a halt in the middle of the secret service agents and before any of them can lift their guns, they are shot down. This is prime movie/TV BS. Where was the truck when it was barrelling down the road at 70 for the two miles previous? You can't just teleport the truck to where you want it to go to have your plot the way you want it. The SS agents would have heard the truck long before it arrived and would have been ready for it. 6 or 8 secret service agents could have held off any number of armed men long enough to get help. Which is exactly what they don't want to happen. If they want the good guys to be tough one can take on 30 by himself and if not, they go down in 2 seconds without a whimper.  

There is no way the terrorists or anybody else for that matter could find out a guy's cell number, where he works his home address and everything else and show up in less than 15 minutes. It would take an hour to set up a tap on a cell phone even if you knew the number, and even more why would they bother?  The guy had already told them all he knew already. How could they know if they listened in on the phone he would ten minutes later call somebody and tell them exactly where he was and what he was wearing and promise to stay there? Total contrived BS.

Why take the guys daughter with you? She is an assistant and is worthless dead weight.  Why take her?  So Jack will have somebody to save. More pointless crap. They need to not think up the plot first and then figure out lame ass ways to make it not work logically. They should make things work right first and make a plot to work around that. Thus won't waste my time with the show any further. Least I didn't waste weeks.


They already used the assistant as clout to get the secretary to do what they wanted.  Otherwise, he likely would sit back and let them beat him to death.

I think you just have very poor taste, as 24 is the absolute best show ever.

I almost thought they had the guts to off Shannon and I was wondering what the hell they were going to do with Boone since he wasn't that interesting with Shannon and a lot less without.


I think Boone is a great character. He's another natural leader, so he is a good source of conflict with Jack.


How do you figure he is a natural leader?  just wondering.

I didn't realize that iRiver doesn't support audio books.  Does anyone know what it doesn't - is there some special format or copyright protection required?  I don't really use my portable players for that, but that's kind of a bummer.

Hmm, looks like audible.com support is indeed coming to the iRiver players.

Ya, I checked that out before deciding on iRiver.  I do play on using audible.com, so compatibility is a must.

I am happy so far with my 512M iRiver 795.  I like being able to select individual whole albums (folders) on the fly, and the FM tuner is pretty good.  It also gets great battery life with 1 AA battery, though the tradeoff is that it is not quite as tiny as the players with AAA batteries or internal batteries.  Sound and build quality is very good.  Mine was $150 at CC after rebate.


I went to CC today to buy that very player.  I had it in my hand and my fiance called and asked what I was doing.  I told her I was about to purchase an mp3 player to take on my first trip with my new job and she almost freaked out.  Come to find out, she has been planning on getting me one for a Wedding present.  I told her I didn't mind holding off at all and that it would be an awesome gift.  I did let her know that I want to pick it out though.  I don't want an iPod and that is probably what she would get me.  I want something with at least 1 gig of space, a built in radio and not big in size.  I am leaning toward an iRiver, mabye the new one with the color screen, or the one mentioned above.
2389  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is a Flash iPod on the horizon? on: January 12, 2005, 05:27:20 PM
I actually just cancelled my order.  

I decided that I actually prefer a screen so i know the title of the song playing.  

I am going to look at other 1 gig flash mp3 players and decide.

Now, can you all explain iTunes to me?  what is so good about it?  

I have a ton of mp3s on my computer, which I using.  I also have an audio book I haven't finished yet, that I plan on ripping to mp3 and putting on the shuffle.  I should have no trouble doing that right?

No, you should have no trouble with the audiobook...in fact the new Shuffle is also Audible-backed, one of the reasons I went with an iPod when I bought an MP3 player.


Very good.  Man I hope it comes before Tuesday!
2391  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is a Flash iPod on the horizon? on: January 12, 2005, 02:24:00 PM
I just ordered the gig version!  I paid extra for 2 day shipping, only to have it tell me after ordering that it may not ship for 1 to 2 weeks.  Hell, I wouldn't have paid extra for 2 day if I had known that.  I leave for Denver on Tuesday.  Really hope it comes in by then.

This player is perfect for me.  I was leaning toward an iRiver, but I think I will go with the gig iPod Shuffle.  I travel a lot with my new job, and it would perfect for the plane.

Quote from: "Eco-Logic"
I just started a priest as well.  I'm only level 9 so far, but I am having a good time.  Where can I train wand?  Right now I am only using a 1h mace, and definitely want another weapon.


You don't need to train wand, you already have the wand "skill" in your abilities.  You should just be able to buy a wand to use it.  Remember a couple of things when you do:

1) You have to click on the wand skill to actually use the wand, after you have the wand equipped in your ranged slot

2) Your wand skill starts out at zero, so you have to use the wand several times (and have it be resisted) before it starts to become effective.

If you are looking for another new weapon, I would highly recommend training staves.  For the horde, this can be done at the weapon master in Thunder Bluff.  Staves seem to be much more effective than maces.

(edit -- I am pretty sure you need to be level 10 before you can learn any new weapon skills, so keep that in mind)


Awesome.  Thanks for the info.  I was leaning toward staves anyway, so I will for sure now.  The trainer is in Stormwind for Alliance, so i will stop by there this evening.  I haven't seen any wands at the AH, but maybe I am not looking at the right place.  

For priests, I need to look for things with bonuses in Spirit and intellect, right?  What else?

I have a Franklin Covey planner. It's very, very nice. I have the New Yorker pages in it as well, so I get a new cartoon every day slywink.

In addition, Covey offers discounts to a bunch of companies. So, if your company is well-known you can probably get some money off.

Anywho, if you have any specific questions let me know.


Thanks godhugh.  What planner do you have?  What size (classic, monarch etc.)?

Lastly, I am interested in having some blank tab dividers for whichever one I decide on to keep track of the clients I am responsible for.  Do they offer such a thing?

Quote from: "Lee"
I disagree wholeheartedly. Dying should have very bad consequences such as experience loss and chance of losing your body. It stops people from doing stupid things like wandering into places they shouldn't be. If the cost is high it makes the game that much more exciting. I will never forget my first journey across Norrath at level 10 in EQ1. It was scary as hell and it gave me a real sense of accomplishment when I was done.

The people bitching about the death penalties in EQ1 were usually the players who couldn't level to save their lives.


The first time  took the boat to Auberdein from Darnassus, and walked to ironforge, you better believe  it gave me a real sense of accomplishment as well.
